Given all the great reviewers, we having been wanting to try this restaurant for a while. We finally managed to book a table for dinner. We booked for 7pm & were told we had the table until 9pm which was fine. The service was very very friendly & attentive. We were just a bit disappointed with the food. Although it... More

visiting Cardiff from North Wales we booked Cafe Citta based solely on the reviews of Tripadvisor plus we love Italian food and this really is as good as it gets. The quality of the food was just excellent with great service in a lovely relaxed environment. Fortunately we booked in advance as it is clearly very popular I just wish... More

I am a quandary as to reviewing this restaurant, only for that fact I'd like to keep it a secret. I had heard good things about it so thought it was time to try. When I booked (I nearly didn't) I was told is was booked in 2 hour slots (one of my pet hates...though I do understand sometimes) anyway... More

My partner and I shared a pizza off the specials board and a the Chicken in white wine sauce dish (Can't remember the proper name!) - The chicken dish was absolutely delicious! but the pizza was AMAZING! IT was broccoli and Italian sausage. The table next to us had the pizza too and I also heard the gentleman say that... More

Beautiful food and interior, truly well decorated. Never rely on a walk in, book in advance and don't consider for a huge party if you intend on being loud! I believe they consider vegan pizza if you take your own cheese in, but the pastas and garlic breads are beautiful. An ideal quiet date.

Whilst walking thro the town centre we bumped into someone we knew who told us she was working in Citta. We had never heard of it and when we walked through St Johns Square we headed for it. Opening the door we saw a tiny room with a busy kitchen area at the rear and every little table packed with... More

This is a little gem of a place, was busy on a Monday and sat in the 'waiting area' Still though, the food was superb. I could taste parsley in my prawn starter and Mal's caprese was to die for. Next time I visit Cardiff I will sort a table out to avoid the window seat.
